A real storm seems to have raged on Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story and its publisher Top Hat Games. After the release on Steam last August, the game of Suzaku is also about to land on Nintendo Switch but it has already sparked several controversies related to the forms of the protagonist.
We can play semantics, but if you can't understand why a response to such is needed, you're being willfully obtuse. We couldn't let false, hateful info spread, and also wanted to reinforce our stance against creative infringement. It certainly got bigger than we expected. (4/5) pic.twitter.com/GqDwwMidj4

In recent days, Top Hat Games has been bombarded with complaints from several users on Twitter, which resulted in accusations of sexism and incitement to rape and the objectification of the female figure or even death threats, all to publish a title with a protagonist with large breasts.
However, the publisher wanted to silence these complaints, stating that the game will not be censored in any way, denouncing the smear and disinformation campaign.

An unpleasant situation, and which hopefully will not affect sales of the title when it comes up Switch on 7 January 2021.
